If your home is less than a year old, it’s not too late to schedule a builder’s warranty inspection. Many homeowners arrange for this kind of inspection after living in a newly-constructed home for 11 months. This is an ideal time to check for structural issues and construction flaws before your warranty expires.
Warranty inspections can help avoid costly repairs down the road. If we find any issues during the inspection, you won’t be responsible for repair costs since your home is still under warranty. Some homeowners don’t discover construction flaws until it’s too late – but when you schedule a builder’s warranty inspection, you can catch issues ahead of time.
Your home builder might not give you a courtesy call to remind you that it’s time for your 11-month warranty inspection – so if you’ve recently bought a new home, put a reminder in your calendar now.
The pool can be one of the house’s greatest assets and improve its value tremendously. However, an improperly maintained pool in poor condition will quickly become a money sink that won’t go away.
Infrared imaging allows unseen problems to be found, which might lead to major problems down the road.
Home inspectors have trained eyes to see problems and areas for potential problems, however they can’t see everything. While a naked eye can see where a problem may be, an infrared camera can see exactly where the problems are, and can be a big advantage for new home buyers.
Is it time to renew your homeowner’s insurance? Are you planning to purchase a policy for the first time? You’ll need to schedule a four-point home inspection. This type of inspection covers areas of the home that are most often involved in insurance claims.
During the inspection, we’ll check your:
Roof – to look for storm damage and leaks
Electrical system – to make sure your system is safe and up to date
HVAC system- to let you know if your unit needs to be replaced
Plumbing system – to check for leaks and blockages
Mold screening can be conducted during the course of a home inspection when there is already a known or suspected mold issue. This may involve air sample testing or swab testing of suspected mold areas, and always includes a written report with our findings.
A mold inspection is conducted to help determine the following:
The value of a Mold Inspection is in the building science: what is the cause of the moisture and how can it be fixed? A lab report which simply identifies the quantities and types of mold will not do this. Mold inspections are also helpful to determine whether or not a mold problem exists. Mold inspections include the following steps:
Since the weather in Florida is so hot, many people have irrigation systems to keep their yards green and healthy. However, because of the year-long great weather, this means that irrigation systems are working year round, which can take a toll on the system.
It is important to get an irrigation inspection before purchasing a home to make sure that it is still in good condition and your yard will stay lush and healthy year-round!

Building a new home can often be a stressful experience for the homeowner. Making sure that all of the work is done properly throughout the entire process can be difficult and you don’t want to simply take the word of the builder that everything is done properly. The Pre-Drywall inspection by LeeWay Home Inspection occurs after all the rough framing, roofing, doors and windows are installed and the rough electrical, plumbing and HVAC work has been completed. This gives you the opportunity to be sure that the work inside the future walls of your home is done correctly.
A pre-closing home inspection can identify common defects and we often find minor issues like minor plumbing leaks, missing grout/caulking, sticky windows, or other common punch-list issues. Sometimes, we find AC vents or electrical outlets which were covered with drywall, loose driveway pavers, or broken sprinkler heads but these issues should also be found in a final walk-through with the builder. The main components which cause most latent defects are covered over.
WDO is an acronym for Wood Destroying Organisms. The most common types found in Florida are the Drywood Termite, Subterranean Termite. Dry rot or fungus damage which are also WDO’s that should be looked out for and are more common than termites. Together they cause billions worth of damage to persons and properties, which is why a WDO inspection is so important.
